Bangkok is everything you'd expect from the capital of Thailand. Noisy, crowded, colorful, exciting, infuriating, and smile inducing. There are ancient sites to be visited and modern shopping malls that have a kitschy yet high-end ambience. Bangkok can be overwhelming as its lifeforce smacks you in the face, but it's a fascinating city that represents Southeast Asia's tension between the developed and developing worlds. Bangkok has a fine array of attractions and places to visit that will appeal to any tourist. Bangkok tourism’s main claim to fame is its collection of beautiful temples, of which there are more than 400 in the city, with the Grand Palace complex being particularly special. It sits on Rattanakosin Island (old Bangkok), where many other high profile temples and palaces are, along with the buzzing street of Khao San Road. The main landmark in Bangkok, the Grand Palace is resplendent in gold trimming and consists of the greatest collection of temples in the capital. It is pricey to enter for foreigners but is well worth it and can be explored on foot. Wat Phra Kaew is the main attraction inside the complex with the Emerald Buddha. Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha is next door to the Grand Palace and has the distinction of being the largest temple in town. There are Buddha statues in here galore, including that of the massive gold-plated, 160-foot long, 60-foot high Reclining Buddha. No sightseeing trip in Bangkok is complete without a visit to the world's largest teak building, which sits in the stunning Dusit Palace area and is a remarkable example of Thai workmanship of old. The Temple of Dawn is just over the river from the Grand Palace and you can get there by walking from the palace to the ferry terminal, taking the short hop for a few baht.The bohemian backpacker capital of the continent resides north of the Grand Palace and is loaded to the hilt with cheap (and some upmarket) hotels, cafés, shops, and bars. The best time to visit Bangkok is from late October to March, when the heat and humidity are at their lowest.
